4.38/5 rDev +2.1%
750 mL bottle poured into flute glass.
A - Surprising lack of murkiness and cloudiness. Ruby brown with a finger of off white head that dissipates somewhat rapidly.
S - Cherry and vinegar. It definitely smells tart and sour.
T - A big pucker punch of tart cherry and a bit of sour apple. The sweet and sour combo really works well with the cherry and apple.
M - Light-to-moderate body with high carbonation. The carb really makes the sour cherry pop on your tongue.
O - An outstanding sour from Rodenbach. Great puckering pour in a good way, letting the sweet/sour/tart cherry dominate the palate.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 12/10/13
A clear dark cola that has a ruby glow when held to the light, just a thin tan foam that quickly falls leaving just a lone patch of lace, enough clarity to see the other side of the glass under the foam
A tart cherry, raspberries, strawberries, very jammy, faint oak, vanilla, loads of brown sugar, some sour candy, smells solid
T tastes even better, great mix of sweet and sour, lots of fizzy candy, lots of berries, just a little vinegar, lots of flavor in a 6%er I could drink this all day
M medium bodied, a little creamy from the bubbles, slick after the fact, just a little sour, slightly sticky on the lips, brown sugar and berries on the finish
O pretty much what I want from the style, well rounded and it tastes awesome, very drinkable brew going on here, my glass is already empty
I'm loving this one and considering its 4$ a bottle I might go stock up, another great addition to the shelves here in Alberta, an easy recommendation
